India Quiz

A couple of weeks ago – around my birthday my husband and I were in the car together and we started testing each other on facts from both America and India. We both did pretty well – and he was especially impressed that I knew bits and pieces of the Indian national anthem. I was also impressed that he knew most of the US national anthem – I did have to supplement a few words here and there when he got overly creative.

So I thought a fun post would be to let you all test your India knowledge: I’d love to see your answers in the comments section (answer them all or pick and choose!). I’ll post the correct answers in a couple of days. If you have another brilliant question that you think will stump us all, feel free to add to my list!
  1. What is India’s national anthem titled? What language was it written in?
  2. What are the 2 groups of islands called that are a part of India?
  3. What is the most populated state in India?
  4. Name 4 major religious groups in India.
  5. Which people group were known as the “head-hunters” of India?
  6. How many officially recognized languages are spoken in India?
  7. What is the name of the Indian language which is the longest palindrome in the Roman script?
  8. What is the largest state in India? What is the smallest?
  9. What is the National Flower of India?
  10. What colors appear on India’s flag?

    I am sadly, very ignorant on many of these questions. Cannot wait for the answers!

    I do, however, know #7. Which I should know or the Malayalee living in my house would totally be rolling his eyes at me. And we cannot have that, can we? Heh.

  2. Heather

    Cagey – I didn’t realize that your husband was Malayalee! Thats cool – my sister in law is Malayalee – and I love her cooking! Kerala has some really unique dishes. Not to mention it is a beautiful place!

  3. Christina

    I know some of these and will guess on others…hehe.
    1- Jana gana mana (I learned that from watching a bollywood movie a long time ago b/c they sang it). I don’t know which language, I mean I’d assume Hindi or Sanskrit.
    2-Andaman(sp?) and Nicobar
    3-Maharashtra ?
    4-Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh
    6-20-something I think?
    7-Malayalam
    9-lotus?

  4. Cagey (Kelli Oliver George)

    Heather, Yes, I LOVE Kerala cooking. Immediately after the start of dating Manoj, I bought a book specifically for Kerala dishes – a sure path to his heart. It worked! Heh. Anyway, the Kerala dishes usually the dishes I trot out when we cook for other Indians because it is something different for them. Americans are always amazed that it is Indian cooking and not some beefy, thick curry. :-)

    The Indian flag is based on a direct copy of the flag of the Congress Party
    The only difference is that the Indian flag has the Ashoka Wheel at its center, whereas the Congress party flag had the cotton spinner Charka on its center

    Part of the reason was to help the congress party fool the illiterate masses during voting, since the Congress flag and the National flag were virtually identical

    The real explanation is to keep the religions happy

    Saffron for Hindus, Sikhs
    White for xtians, the Ashoka wheel for buddhists, and Green for muslims

    Very often, muslims to irritate the hindus put the green on top and saffron on bottom

    The sri lankan flag has a vertical saffron stripe for hindus and green vertical stripe for muslims
